. >> one lawmaker strongly against charging dzhokhar tsarnaev as an enemy combatant. adam schiff, a boston area. thank you for joining us. i'm sure your heart is going out to your native city here. so congressman, take us through this. should he be tried as an enemy of the united states, an enemy combatant? can he be prosecuted in that manner? >> well, i don't think we have really seen any evidence yet that would support treating him as an enemy combatant. this is somebody who is a u.s. citizen, arrested on u.s. soil for acts committed on u.s. soil. really far appeal from the paradigm of an enemy combatant, captured on an enemy battlefield. we don't have any evidence he's part of an al qaeda cell or been foreign directioned here. it's possible that could materialize but i think it is very hasty tore calling for his treatment as an enemy combatant. moreover, we haven't had much success in trying enemy combatants in our military commissions. criminal courts have been much more successful in the expeditious prosecution of terrorists. so this rush to want to proclaim him an enemy combatant and
